There’s always something new happening at Burnie Brae and we like to keep our members up to date. Check out any new activities, changes in existing activities and Centre events coming to Burnie Brae.
The new members’ lounge and re-located library has now been unveiled, much to the delight of our members. The new airy space with bright, comfortable seating provides a place for sitting with a friend or browsing through book selections in the relocated library. There is also a flow over area from the cafe which is a fantastic space for larger groups celebrating special events, or people wanting a quiet catch up with a friend.
All Burnie Brae members receive a $6.00 Cafe birthday voucher as part of their membership.
All vouchers are now loaded on to your membership card, so there is no longer any need to post out vouchers.
Your birthday voucher is valid for 31 days from the date of your birthday and all you need to do to redeem your voucher is to go with your membership card to Cafe Connect during the 31 days that the voucher is valid for and let staff know you are using your voucher.
You are free to choose anything from the Cafe menu that you would like as a special treat from us. If it doesn’t amount to $6.oo, the balance will remain on your card for that 31 day period.
Our food support program, Project Pantry will be promoted more widely in the community thanks to a recent vehicle wrap which has been applied to their van.
The brightly coloured wrap with a photo taken at a recent Market Day showing our Project Pantry volunteers, can’t be missed and is a great way of getting the word out in the community about this fantastic service.

Project Pantry is an unfunded food support program operated by Burnie Brae to provide food and personal care products to pensioners in our community. One Saturday of every month, a Project Pantry market day is held with over 300 food hampers being distributed. In addition to this an average of 80 free emergency food hampers per month are given to those in financial crisis. There is also an increasing number of other charitable organisations who refer their clients to us for support. There is clearly a need for Project Pantry but without the support of the community, our program cannot be sustained long term.
We need help to continue offering this service.
As one Project Pantry recipient said it
“Without Project Pantry to get me by, I don’t know how I would make it. I am very, very grateful.”
Please assist us so we can continue to make a difference in the lives of pensioners who rely on this program.
